, president obama and mitt romney make their case in ohio. we're headed to the buckeye state next. >>> now we go to campaign 2012, a lot of the focus on ohio today. golfing legend and native son jack nicklaus helped republican mitt romney make the case he's the better presidential candidate. both romney and president obama have made more than a dozen visits to the critical swing state of ohio. >> the people of ohio are going to say loud and clear on november 6th we can't afford four more years. we must do better. >> it looks like mitt romney needs to do better in ohio right now. a new cbs poll finds him trailing the president by 10 points, the lead among women 25 point. president obama also campaigned today in the buckeye state. a quinnipiac university cbs news poll new york sometimes as well has him leading in two other battlegrounds, florida and pennsylvania. >>> coming up on 9news no problem with name recognition, bruce leshan reports from romney, west virginia. >> reporter: i'm bruce leshan in romney, west virginia. this small town may share its name with the republican presidential nomi
obama is opening leads in states that mitt romney can least afford to lose. have a look at our new poll today. the president now has a 10-point lead in the swing state of ohio, 53% to 43. in florida, another key swing state, mr. obama's lead is nine points, 53% to 44. and the president leads by 12 point in pennsylvania, 54 to 42. this quinnipiac university/cbs news/"new york times" polls has a margin of roar of three points so the leads are significant. our cbs news election analysis team is moving ohio from a toss- up to leaning toward mr. obama. with that, we estimate 255 electoral votes are solidly in the obama camp or leaning that way. for governor romney the number is 206 with 270 needed to win. the president would have to pick up just 15 in the remaining toss-up state that you see on this map in gray. if the president wins ohio, governor romney would have to nearly sweep those toss-up states in order to win the white house. so no surprise that we find both candidates in ohio today. our campaign 2012 team is on their trail and we're going to start tonight with nancy cordes. nancy.
in the battleground states. >>> mitt romney could make a huge impact on the supreme court. how he could change the direction of the court for decades. >>> they make $10 a day to put their lives on the line. but they could lose their job ifs they don't lose some weight. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in
four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy question. which candidate is seen as advancing the interest of the middle class? you see the president up by 25 points on that question in florida, by 19 points in ohio. and that is of course what people vote on. because everybody says they're middle class. so this is essentially asking, who's the fellow who cares more about my interests? and with obama up by those considerable double digits, it's very, very difficult for mitt romney. >> puts the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a we
for the white house zeros in on ohio. >> both president obama and mitt romney will be in the same state at the same time. >> no republican has won the white house without winning the buckeye state. >> o.h. >> o.h. works every time. >> iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad addresses the united nations today as he and his regime face ever increasing international pressure. >> israel believes you want to destroy them. you said you want to drive them from the face of the earth. >> football fans are fuming over that botched call by replacement refs. the upheld that call. >> yeah. some are calling it the worse call in the nfl history since d to play at the super bowl. >> worst touchdown ever. hail the size of tennis balls. >> the paddle boat race that teams are still talking about. >> how about a car without a driver. governor jerry brown instituted safety regulations for self-driving car. >> it came courtesy. >> is he frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> wow. >> all that matters. >> seattle seahawks were robbed of a win. >> the packers got the win. >> i didn't watch the game. >> thank you very muc
that if governor romney standing there with the incumbent president of the united states is just there at the end. he wins a certain amount. he's just standing there at the end, he survived. >> well, he does gain by being on stage with an incumbent president. that's an elevating effect. the question is, he needs a lot of elevation right now. >>> entitlement reform is going to be a huge topic during these debates. and steve rattner, you have your charts on this, and you'll break it apart for the candidates because it's very hard to understand where they stand on these things because they won't say anything. >> we're going to talk about medicare, which is one of the big issues, and you're right, it's very, very hard to break it apart. but you see surprising things about where they stand. so we're going to lay it out as clear as i can. there are three plans. therest obama's plan, there's romney's sort of plan and ryan's plan. let's take a look at this and the next ten years. so the ten years in front of us and what each proposed. what's interesting is that president obama and congressman ryan have a
romney the next president of the united states, wolf. i have a strg sense this will be brought up at tomorrow night's debate, wolf. >> we'll have a lot more on what joe biden has just said and the very tough reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned that marco rubio, the rising star, senator from florida who had a prominent role at the republican convention, he will also be in the room. it's interesting to note this comes just as mitt romney's making some new gestures in some outreach, you could say, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right.
romney appear to be on the same page. >> that the president of the united states must make a priority of helping reduce demand in this country. >> the united states can focus on drug treatment and prevention. >> absolutely. i agree with that. >> reporter: if anyone should know, it's judge giselle pollack. she presides over drug court in broward county, florida. the idea, get clean, you may not a perfect record. pollack says drug courts ought to be a priority for the candidates, because they reduce drug dependency and save taxpayers millions. &she's g and she's got the numbers to back it up. a study showed pollack's court saved the county as much as $30 million a year over a five-year period. basically, the difference in the cost of treatment and counseling versus incarceration. >> if we can keep them out of the critical justice system at this level, then we will save billions and billions in prison costs. >> reporter: for the white house, it's a multi-layered approach. focus on education and prevention, treat drugs and addiction as a public health issue, not just a criminal justice co
. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points, nevada by 13. new hampshire and iowa 10 respectively. colorado by nine. all the battleground states are d
in the swing state of nevada getting ready for the first face off with governor romney on wednesday night, the first debate. the president telling a crowd in las vegas he's just okay at he debating. chief white house correspondent ed henry is live in las vegas. the administration is sending mixed messages on libya. tell us more about that. >> that confusion started on the sunday talk show circuit a couple of weeks back when ambassador susan rice did several of the shows and did not declare this was a terror attack, insisted it was a spontaneous reaction to the anti-muslim film. i've spoken to u.s. senior officials that stand behind the fact that they insist in the early days of this susan rice was correct, that was the assessment of the intelligence community. beefewe've also got information from sources that within 24 hours, the intelligence community within 24 hours of the attack new it was terrorism. more days have passed and back on the sunday show talk show circuit you have one obama adviser saying they did use the word terror the day after the attack, you had another adviser say, wa
the state, day after day, about how the economy there is really growing and booming. and romney doesn't necessarily, you know, say the same thing. it's kind of mixed messages. and he also hasn't come up with a really strong, coherent response, to the auto bailout. he says let detroit go bankrupt. there's a supply chain, you know, a lot of manufacturers in ohio. the obama campaign talks about this day after day after day after day and romney campaign doesn't really have much of an answer for it. romney's going to ohio after his new york visit to join up with paul ryan for a bus tour. they know how important it is and they definitely have some work to do, john. >> all right. thank you, peter hamby in washington. the romney ohio bus tour begins today. thanks very much. >>> 35 minutes past the hour. the fbi will investigate the controversial shooting death of a disabled man. this was by police in houston. on saturday, officers were called to a group home for mentally ill people. responding to reports that a wheelchair-bound resident was acting aggressively. police say the double amputee a
particularly the swing state polling being so negative for romney republicans have to gin up their base and say, looks, this is not over. don't file the election away. we are still in the game. in fairness to chris christie, he received to the other at the -- >> were you surprised? this is going to be a game changer? >> a little bit. i understand it. you look at yesterday a poll out in ohio. obama up. saturday in iowa, obama up. every state they're bone contesting, president obama is ahead. republicans clearly have to give the message to the troops. look, this is -- we are still in this hunt and this is going to about reset moment. >> a lot of talk about zingers that perhaps will be created by the mitt romney team. the "new york times" writes, mr. romney's team concluded the debates are about creating moments and equipped him with a series of zingers he has memorized and has been practicing for days since august. we've seen zingers defining debates in the past. look at a couple of the most memorable ones. >> zingiest. >> there you go again. >> i want you to know that, also, i will not make age
. it costs money for the federal government and state government. the romney plan, we've been dissecting it, turns medicaid into a block program and let the states decide and ultimately, there's less dollars going into the program. >> since seniors are a large portion of the recipients of medicaid, what happens to them? how are they affected? >> interesting, as a physician i've been looking it a. medicare for catherines and medicaid for people impoverished or have disabilities. 6 million seniors get medicaid as well called dually eligible. the area that impacts them the most is probably long term and nursing homecare. medicare covers a lot of things. one of the things it falls shorter is in that nursing homecare. if you're a senior that falls within that poverty guideline and you need nursing homecare, medicaid is often where that source of money comes from. i think those people will be affected the most. >> sanjay gupta, thanks. >>> next more in-depth look at the candidates' plans on sanjay gupta md. >>> and the refs back getting rock star treatment at least within the first four minutes.
on the global stage. >> while republican challenger, mitt romney, reenergizes his campaign with a bus tour through a key battleground state. it is "your voice, your vote" on this tuesday, september 25th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> good morning, i'm john muller. >> i'm sunny hostin. paula and rob are on assignment. we'll got to presidential politics and the first couple's appearance on "the view" in our top story. >>> then to southern california where high school students and soccer coach under arrest in a hazing scandal. we will bring you those details. they're disturbing. >>> also this morning, the plan to passion out the so-called morning-after contraceptive pill to students as young as 14 years old. what administrators and parents have to say about this. i am just not quite sure what i feel. >> this is a tough one. a lot of opinions. we'll talk about it. >>> a new glimpse inside john f. kennedy's presidency through secret recordings made in the oval office. his haunting words in an abc news exclusive. >>> first, president obama steps on to the world stage
. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are covered. insurance premiums have about $70.veby take us through how this plan has worked out. guest: most people would tell you the effort to get people insured has worked out astoundingly well. the s
will have a sense as to who can be the better leader for the united states. and mitt romney has to come across as, well, he can do a better job leading the united states on domestic policies. so it's an impression that the viewer will get overall. it will be the zingers. but it will be really the impression. who can create the better impression of leadership and that person will win the debate. >> i must say, it was really something to hear some anonymous spokesperson say that governor romney had been rehearsing the spontaneous moments that they were going to do. >> i'm sure he's not the first politician -- let me ask congressman poe, do politicians do that in general ? i have to imagine all politicians rehearse the spontaneous moments. am i right or am i wrong? >> yes, of course. i think most people in a speech have a one-liner, so to speak. they wait for the right time to use the one-liner. you never know when it'll come up. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptan
is responsible is the attorney general of the united states. congress ryan, mitt romney, and congress is correct it's time for eric holder to go. there is only five weeks between thousand and the election. there is political consequences and there is real consequences here. even the inspector general's report did not absolve eric holder as he claims it did. he still should have known what was going on with such a massive operation. martha: it did show he didn't know. you are saying that isn't enough. i get that. but there is no indication that the administration has any intention of changing their attorney general, jay. >> that right. i think that's the political reality of the situation. that's why congressman issa has moved for contempt proceedings against attorney general holder. politically the president of the youth is not going to want to make a move at the department of justice which will look like a sign of weakness. we have a dead border patrol agent at the hands our own weapons. we have 16 mexican teenagers killed at hands our weapons in mexico with no knowledge of the mexican governme
, mitt romney will be aggressively storming the campaign trail. >> we're going to get this country on the right track to do what needs to be done. >> reporter: he continued his swing through colorado, the state president obama won in 2008, but is in a dead heat six weeks out from election day. in an interview with abc news, romney said voters have an important choice. >> my job is to present in as clear a manner as i can my view of how to get this economy going and contrast it with the view of a president who is a status quo economic model president. >> reporter: today romney kicks off a bus tour in battleground ohio. this is the last full week of campaigning, before the presidential debates begin and take over the candidates' attention. president obama was off the campaign trail in new york for the annual united nations general assembly. but he stopped by abc's "the view" with the first lady. >> i've just got a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think, barbara, you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> today president obama and mitt romney wi
adviser to governor romney. >> i say this to make a partisan statement, but it is different. we spend years in the bush years talking about an imperial for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules that makes rules are ready else. * not what this war of this. it is not ever going to work. and so i think with in the united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating although they have not nearly as strong as the root like them to be, there is hope and strength to move into an isolationist direction to move away from spending money and writing checks for international institutions, to move toward taking care our own business. look at president obama and his strategy with regard said drones and covert operations. it's very exceptional is the. is in this exceptional as the impulse something that could actually be more extreme in the next several years? >> i was with you right up until the end because exceptional rosamund isolationism are two different things. exceptional some can be the engine for imperial
an eye on the few states heat could go either way. heose so-called swing states that will decide the race. the latest polling in ohio shows the president slightly ahead of mitt romney 51% to 46%. the margin of error is 3%. in florida, mr. obama leads 50% to 45% with a margin of error of four points. and in colorado it's essentially a tie. the president leading 48% to 47% margin of error three points. mst night on "60 minutes" we devoted the entire hour to a conversation with the president and governor romney. in one interview, we asked governor romney about his controversial comments to a private group when he said he tdn't care about trying to attract the votes of 47% of americans. we were talking in an interview a few weeks ago and i remember he quote. you said that you had a passion for all the people of this aluntry. end quote. and then we see the surreptitiously recorded video from that fundraiser in which n't suggested that you didn't care about 47% of the people because they're dependent on government and they won't take personal responsibility for their lives. which is the real mi
to the united states given a zero corporate tax rate environment. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no, not even remotely close. they're arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare. romney says he wants to balance the federal budget, but that he wants to increase spending for the military. well, it doesn't add up. and if we want to believe in the things that these guys are saying, then i guess we belief in the easter bunny and santa claus and by extension the tooth fairy and, steve, i don't think thai coming. >> host: gary johnson is with us, and want to remind viewers we'll a add a fourth line this morning for third-party voters, 202-585-3883 is your line, and we'll get to your calls in just a couple moments. at this point, um, governor johnson, what's the strategy for the rest of the election? where are you focusing most of your time and attention right now? >> guest: oh, right now there's a lot of attention that's being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized now for being at 6% nationally. um, i'll just ask you an obvious question here t
for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption. back then that was a conscientious objector status in the 1960's when they were drafting everybody to go to vietnam. that was before the lottery system. it was basically the old system. i feel like to the core of romney, he is two-faced. host: what does this have to do with the role of the united nations? caller: if he does not have the guts to stand up for this country, what makes you think he would be suitable to be president of the united states? host: here's thomas on the line. caller: i think the u.n. is doing a decent job. it is an enormous task they are undertaking. the bigger problem is our relationship with israel. we let them dictate to us on everything. the republicans are lining because obama will not meet with benjamin n
believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as po
in the national polls and also in these battleground states. the most interesting battleground state is ohio where it looks like there have been a consistent number of polls that have shown the president pulling away. he's ahead of mitt romney outside the margin of error so things are going well for the president. the expectations couldn't be any higher for mitt romney on these debates. >> three new polls out this morning that, again, also show obama with the lead in battleground states. >> right. in new hampshire, north carolina, and in nevada. what's interesting about nevada is that the president is going to be there for three days of debate preparation. it's an early voting state. not just about november 6th in nevada. the president will be there for tree days tlooe days three days. he has one event. that stirs them up in nevada so they can get those votes banked right now. nevada is 2 points in that poll. very close battleground state. what's interesting about that state is it's live. it's going right now. we don't have to wait until election day. >> everybody keeps talking about there are six
by real clear politics of a bunch of polls. the president almost at 50%, governor mitt romney at 44.5%. elizabeth crumb join us, co-anchor of the agenda, a daily political talk show. thanks for being with us, elizabeth. it would seem as though the housing crisis in your state, not to mention the incredibly high unemployment rate, would actually favor the challenger, mitt romney. true? >> well, you would think so in conventional wisdom, it would certainly say so. but if you look at the polls throughout the summer really but even most recently in september, most of them do lean president obama's way, and so i think there's a question in nevada as to whether voters believe that mitt romney's got a better plan for fixing what ails nevada than simply staying the course with president obama. greg greg as i understand it, the demographics favor the president. is he counting on hispanic votes to carry him through? >> absolutely. that's a big part of the picture here. hispanics now make up about 27 percent of the population in nevada. we've really seen those numbers grow over the past ten ye
is with the president, he's doing well in the national polls and also in these battleground states. the most interesting battleground state is ohio, where it looks like there have been a consistent number of polls that shows the president pulling away ahead of mitt romney outside of the margin of error. things going well for the president. expectations couldn't be higher for mitt romney in debates. >> three new polls show obama with the lead in battleground states. >> in new hampshire and north carolina, and in nevada. what's interesting about nevada is that the president is going to be there for three days of debate preparation. nevada, an early voting state. not just about november 6th in nevada, and the president will be there for three days, have you at least one event. what that does is stir up the democrats in nevada so they can get those votes banked right now and nevada is about two points in that poll, very close battleground state. what's interesting about that state, it's live. going right now. and we don't have to wait until election day. >> everybody keeps talking, six weeks to go before el
at for the voters we are trying to hear from a different battleground states, it is an opportunity to hear from people as they are meeting the president or governor rodney. -- romney. you might learn that instantaneously in a way that you could not do that before. >> i guess it is appropriate that i be the contrary in. dodge that is why we have you. >> i belong to a different generation and i signed up for twitter a couple years ago because i wanted to write about it. i wanted to see how many followers i would get. as a print person, i have a hard time seeing it with a straight face. i do follow some news people, but i kind of forget about it. i will come on and go, what am i going to do? i can get in the hot tub. i followed during the day and i find that i will sometimes say something and i always regret it. leading makes me feel a little bit cuter than i need the, and typically, i am at home with the laptop and the wine glass next to me. i have a sign on my desk that says do not drink and dissent. -- do not drink and send. i thought the world was coming to an end when george stephanopoulos in
.s.." this is the former ambassador to the u.n. and another advisor to governor romney. i say this not to make a partisan statement here but to say that it's different. we spent years in the bush years talking about an imperial role for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules. they make rules for everybody else. that is just not what that view is in my view. with a united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating that there is, although they are not nearly as strong as we would like them to become a health and strength in a multinational system. >> to talk a lot about continuity. -- you talk a lot about continuity. if you set aside the past 50 years, the longest extended a continuous strain in u.s.- international outlook was isolationism. it was looking after our own problems, staying out of it, taking advantage of the fact that the atlantic and the pacific immunize us against being involved on the other side of the world. do you worry that there is an impulse within the far right, and to some degree in the far left go
